Slow Cooker Pork Roast

28 01 2011

My Slow Cooker needs to come out of the closet more often!

Yesterday as I was (rushing) out the door, I remembered that we had purchased a nice seasoned Pork Roast that we needed to use. In about 5 minutes, I had that baby in my slow cooker and came home to a home that smelled heavenly…with dinner almost ready!

Portobello Mushroom & Cracked Black Pepper Pork Loin

You could use any flavors of seasoned pork loins, and we have had great luck with other flavors such as BBQ, Applewood Bacon & Lemon Pepper styles.

Sliced onion and a little tomato sauce bring a lot of flavor!

Slice up an onion or two.

Pour on the tomato sauce and throw in some mushrooms if desired.

Let me interject that I am missing my favorite “ingredient” for a slow cooker recipe…the Slow Cooker Liners from Reynolds.  We use them all the time at the store, and I always have them on hand…except for when I really needed them yesterday.  Oh well, I had to wash the crock pot…not really a HUGE deal…but I do LOVE those liners!

Add sliced onions to the top.

Add sliced onions, black pepper, Italian Seasoning & garlic salt to the top…then pop on the lid and let the Slow Cooker do it’s magic!  Serve over rice or buttered noodles or use the meat to make delicious sandwiches.  If you’re living Low Carb like I am, just serve with a side of steamed brocolli or green beans. Yum!  Dinner in a hurry!  Sorry I forgot to take a picture of the finished dinner…we just dug in and had a delicious dinner.

 

Slow Cooker Pork Loin

1 pre-seasoned pork loin, 2-3 lbs. any flavor
1 15 oz. can tomato sauce
1 can sliced mushrooms, undrained
1-2 large onions, sliced
1 T. Italian seasoning
1/2 tsp. ground black pepper
1/2 tsp. garlic salt
Slow cooker liner

Place slow cooker liner in crock pot.  Place seasoned pork loin in crock pot.  Layer tomato sauce, undrained mushroomes, sliced onions, Italian seasoning, black pepper & garlic salt over loin.  Cover with lid and set slow cooker to low for 8-9 hours.  It will just be fall apart, fork tender.  Serve over rice or buttered noodles.  Would also make a delicious sandwich filling!

I was looking for a recipe. Use my slow cooker lots! Just found a new recipe for Pulled Pork Sandwiches with Root Beer Barbecue Sauce. Also has a cup of root beer when you cook the pork in the crock pot! Let you know how it turns out. Course need a few extra people to help eat it. Any takers?????

I’ve never heard of Root Beer in a recipe, but it sounds very good! My friend, Kathryn, makes a delicious Coca-Cola Ham, and her recipe was in our Between Friends Cookbook….so sounds like the same principle. Wonder what ingredient in a soda makes it such a good addition to these recipes?
